Christmas Eve

We played carols in Broad Street this morning. The very kind lady and gentleman in the Fudge Kitchen provided us with coffee and teas and we are very grateful to them for their hospitality which is much appreciated.

To finish off the morning we moved up the street and played a few more carols outside Tesco. We only had a small band but there were enough of us to make a good sound and everyone was very appreciative of our efforts.

We’ve now packed up our instruments and will not meet again until our first practice of the new year, which will take place at Woodmead Halls on Tuesday, 8th January 2019 from 8.00 pm. It would be lovely to see some new faces so if you would be interested in joining us please feel free to pop in for a chat.

We are a friendly, non-contesting band and we welcome players of all ages and abilities from youngsters just starting to learn, to “rusty” players who would like to start playing again. A gentleman approached one of our players when we were playing in the Square on Remembrance Sunday to say he lived locally and played the euphonium. Unfortunately we didn’t get his name but if you are out there please get in touch – we would love to see you.

We have a thriving training band featuring four youngsters from local primary schools and we would love to attract more. We can provide an instrument and free tuition plus loads of support and encouragement

Finally we would like to thank all our families and friends for supporting the band throughout 2018. We wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and we look forward to another busy year in 2019.
